Abstract

In our current curriculum design project we are building on many years of experience in designing curricula and starting new degree courses. We are particularly building on the methodological approach developed over the years, that can be summarised in the following five design concepts: the overall curriculum design process is ‘quasi-algorithmic’, the individual steps within the process are ‘quasi-heuristic’, the desired learning process is ‘quasi-incremental’, the outcome of this learning process is a ‘quasi-abductive’ big picture, and it is ‘quasi-validated’ in the context of a single problem area. Similarly to most of our recent endeavours, this professional doctoral school (PDS) will also be post-experiential. This time, however, we are working on a unique educational concept at doctoral level. We are pioneering a professional doctorate which concept is currently unknown in the context of the Hungarian higher education. Furthermore, our curriculum design is unique worldwide.
